Take notice that on March 14, 2003, Atmos Energy Corporation (Atmos) filed an information rate filing pursuant to the Commission's March 17, 2000 Order on Remand in Docket Nos. CP00-56-000 and CP00-60-000.
Atmos states that the purpose of the filing is to present information consistent with the Commission's authority under 15 U.S.C. 717i(a) in order to allow the Commission to monitor Atmos' jurisdictional rates under section 5 of the Natural Gas Act. Atmos further states that it seeks no change in its existing rates and charges or the previously approved terms and condition upon which it provides service.
Pursuant to § 284.123(b)(2)(ii), if the Commission does not act within 150 days of the date of this filing, the rates will be deemed to be fair and equitable and not in excess of an amount which interstate pipelines would be permitted to charge for similar transportation service. The Commission may, prior to the expiration of the 150 day period, extend the time for action or institute a proceeding to afford parties an opportunity for written comments and for the oral presentation of views, data, and arguments.
Any person desiring to participate in this rate proceeding must file a motion to intervene or protest with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, in accordance with §§ 385.214 or 385.211 of the Commission's Rules and Regulations. All such motions or protests must be filed with the Secretary of the Commission on or before the comment date. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceedings. Any person wishing to become a party must file a motion to intervene. This petition for rate approval is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “FERRIS” link.
